The Maison magazine publishers have been my number one source of inspiration since 1998. I can’t get on without spending the enormous ticket price (about 8 to 10 dollars each depending on whether the kiosk is in Malibu or not) for the mag (since it has to come from France) It has most certainly paid off as an indulgence for me over the last decade. Just order it delivered to your door and use BabelFish to understand the gorgeous recipes. I like the Cote Ouest edition best, myself. I like it sooooo much that i went and stayed and toured all the hotels and their gardens of Brittany and Normandy right off their pages for a while.
